I am an imaginative realist who paints eclectic subject matters in oils.


You can find landscapes, waterscapes and portraits in a traditional style and also with a contemporary feel and perspective - such as close ups of mushrooms, a shell beach and pet portraits.  

You can find visions of the unexpected and unusual — such as a pet in a military uniform, a white rabbit among walking sticks, a pink elf and a floating dog and pomagranate.  

I invite you to enjoy a different perspective on life and the people and locations that surround us.
